“Blade Runner 2049” Gets R Rating

It’s not exactly a surprised. A few months back, when commenting on directing “Blade Runner 2049”, Denis Villeneuve joked about the following:

My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made.

Well, no surprise. Today the MPAA announced that the sequel to the original 1982 film has been rated R for “violence, some sexuality, nudity & language”. The original was rated R for brief nudity and violence. Whether the unrestrained nature of the film means anything to it’s quality is anyone’s guess. Hopefully it is a sequel that stands on it’s own and isn’t living in the original’s shadow.

“Blade Runner 2049” stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto. It is set to be released in theaters October 6, 2017.

    The original Blade Runner, released in 1982, was rated R.

    The PG-13 rating did not exist until July 1984. The first film with this rating was the original Red Dawn.

    Not yet, i’ll dl it later. The series is on some obscure AT&T channel that no one has.

    It should just be on Netflix or Hulu, which is where the first season will likely end up anyways to stream after a year of it’s initial airing.


  3. The twin peaks return imo is a complete mess so far and the thing that pisses me off the most – where the fuck is Agen cooper? The coolest character from the original? The FBI agent who was smarter then everybody else around? Instead we have…Dougie,a retarded idiot who’s only skill is fucking Naomi Watts and making her happy.

    Bravo Lynch.

    I have been watching this 3rd season of Twin Peaks since the most recent episode, and it seems to be a very self-indulgent, vanity exercise/project by David Lynch. Like he wanted to do a mashup of all of his styles/cliches one more time.

    Some reviews of the episode where the ghost bums were feeding on Evil Cooper and then the scene in the Opera hall tried to act like it was SOOOOO original but it wasn’t.

    The creepy bum was behind the dumpster in Mulholland Drive and the bum group skittered around like David Lynch’s short films with the Rabbit suit family.

    The Opera Hall scene was also in Mulholland First when the famous latina singer performed Cryin’ by Roy Orbison in Spanish.

    Maybe Lynch just wants to be meta or self-referential now, but he is not being original with this season imo, he is being redundant.
